Vaccine Compliance for Service Providers in Classes

September 15, 2021 

Dear faculty,

On Aug. 26, 2021, Governor Pritzker issued an Executive Order aimed in part at mitigating the spread of COVID-19 in higher educational institutions. Among other things, the Order requires that most vendors and individuals providing services or volunteering at the university, both on campus and at affiliated off-campus locations, be vaccinated for COVID-19, or have a qualifying religious or medical exemption coupled with a weekly testing requirement. The Order takes effect Monday, Sept. 20.

Vendors and others providing services to the university, including volunteer services, must certify that they are in compliance with the Order by completing an annual certification. This group includes guest lecturers, models in art classes and any other service providers. They are all expected to review, sign and return the applicable form via e-mail to the department or area receiving services. No vendor or individual should be working or volunteering on campus, or at affiliated off-campus locations, after Sept. 20, 2021, without having a signed compliance form on file.

These forms will be collected by the colleges; your dean will send you specific instructions for your area.

The forms can be downloaded here:

The forms are also available on the Vendor and Volunteer Vaccine Compliance webpage on DePaul's COVID-19 Updates and Guidance website. This webpage has more information and a set of FAQs that may help you navigate this process.

Departments and areas are encouraged to proactively send the applicable form to their service providers and volunteers asking them to sign and return completed forms promptly. This ensures that they will have as much notice as possible to comply. 

Thank you for helping DePaul stay in compliance with Governor Pritzker's Executive Order and for doing your part to promote health and safety on campus.
